VILLAGE BOOK BUILDERS INC

About Us

The Story of Village Book Builders starts with the simple love of books. Books encourage us to think critically, build empathy, imagine moonshots and help us build brighter futures together. Unfortunately, not all children have access to quality educational resources and the dearth of books is just the beginning of a vicious cycle.

This is why we created Village Book Builders: A non-profit aiming to help communities re-establish learning cultures through access to safe local libraries, books, technology, and 1:1 student mentorship. Today we call this Hope Through Books .

First runner-up in Stanford Longevity Design Challenge (2020), the Engineering division of Village Book Builders is looking for self-starter interns & volunteers passionate about making a difference by leveraging their core competencies.

About this Position

Operating a digital-first organization at a global level generates a multitude of data trails. However, the majority of this data is siloed in various in-house or 3rd party SaaS applications. Our goal is to collate and cross reference data from these disparate sources in order to build a 360° view of the organization’s impact and operational health. You will help change the way nonprofits monitor and report their impact by moving away from active data sources (such as surveys & assessments) which requires huge investments of volunteer and beneficiary time, efforts.

Qualifications

  • Ability to commit to the position for a minimum of 3 months, preferably longer
  • Formal or informal learning experience in Data Science, Computer Science or equivalent quantitative field
  • Past experience with BI platforms (Power BI, Metabase, Google Data Studio, etc.)
  • Experience with Python, Jupyter Notebooks and SQL desirable
  • Understanding of data science concepts and different supervised/unsupervised learning techniques
  • Image processing or NLP experience will be considered an asset but not required
